There is no answer right now, and to complicate matters we have the DM/NY stubbornness thing to deal with. That being said, as they approach .500 again, one has to wonder if they are might be tired of the floggings they get when their favorite players blow it (again). That doesn't mean they have an alternative as a starter, but it might mean that the hook might come much sooner. It'll add wear on the bullpen, but if it's for one game (and they bring somebody up), it might be worth it.
